Winners of the Wonderful Words Challenge

Two. Four. Six. 128.
Who does this Moxie Fabber appreciate?
All of you who rocked it out, putting forth 128 (!!!) fabulous entries in the Wonderful Words Challenge. Each and every single one of them was fantastic! A big hearty thank you goes out to all of you for playing along and sharing your projects. I sure hope you all had fun!

So how about we officially wrap this challenge up and name ourselves three winners?! Drum roll, please. Here we go.

(By Keren)

Boy, is that happy word cool or what? It just pops off the card! Look real close and you'll see Karen die-cut the word seven (!!!) times! I sure love the look. High 5, Keren!


From the color combo to all the happy elements, this card screams fun. And check out Lisa's rainbow style die-cut words. She adhered strips of cardstock to a larger piece of cardstock and die-cut them. Such a lovely look! Way to go, Lisa!


What do you say about a card that just plain makes you smile? Pia's card does that for me. Add to it that I love how she combined together the different word dies to make her sentiment. It's just fantastic. Nice job, Pia!

Congrat to the winners! Winners, please drop me an email at teriishere AT Gmail DOT com with your mailing address. You've just scored a Say It - Happy steel die from Technique Tuesday. I'll also hook you up with a Moxie Fab challenge winning badge.

While I could only name three winners, I'd like to send some shout-outs to these fine folks:
Tune in next week when I announce the next Moxie Fab World Challenge. I hope you all will join the fun once again! 

Here's to having fun and making stuff,
Teri

OK. I'm sold on them. I'll take 24. But they better be awesome ones. Arrrrghh! Shiver me paper trimmer! 

Awesome stuff is even showing up in the paper crafting and scrapbooking world. I've spotted the word on quite a few products out there. Here's a small taste of the awesomeness.






Yep. It's all so, so, so awesome.
And speaking of awesome, I think this card by Heather Campbell is pretty awesome!


Yep. Totally awesome.
So what do you think about the awesome word? Are you a fan? Not so much?

I must admit that I'm thinking I'm going to make something awesome today (or maybe try to fit the word into everyday conversation as much as I possibly can).

Have an awesome day,
Teri

1 Neat Technique & More

Hello, friends!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
I got in a little crafting time, spent some quality time with my dog and went on a family fun run/walk. All in all, it was a good weekend. I mean, check out the bling that came home with me.


Mmm. Mmm.
Of course, friends, don't get too excited. Everyone who took part in the run/walk got one. (Wink!)
So have you heard about the August issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine? The digital issue is available for purchase now. (You can also get a digital subscription here.)


The issue features a lot of cool stuff. From cards and scrapbook pages with dream catchers and feathers on them to cards designed on a diagonal to cards that use trendy clothespins, paper clips and other clips, there's a lot of inspiration to be found in this issue.
I was particularly drawn to this inspiring card (on page 69) from Cristina Martinez Diez.

(You're Amazing Card by Cristina Martinez Diez)

While it appears in a feature on designing on a diagonal, I thought how Cristina created the sentiment with stamping and cardstock was so cool! In fact, I created this card using her sentiment technique.

(Supplies:  So Very Blessed clear stamp from Neat & Tangled; Sequins and Ticket Die-namics steel dies from My Favorite Things; cardstock; floss; Orange Fizz, Razzle Berry and Blu Raspberry ink pads; vellum)

My sentiment isn't as detailed as Cristina's, but the concept is the same.
Start by stamping a sentiment on a piece of cardstock. Then stamp it a couple more times in different colors on ink on another piece of cardstock.


Keep one sentiment panel complete. Cut the others into strips. Adhere them onto the complete piece.


Keep going until you've added all the strips of color you want to add.


Ta-da! And fun, huh?!
Thinking about giving Cristina's sentiment technique a try? I'd love to see what you make doing it. Share your project online and then leave a link for me in the comments field below so I can check it out! 

Here's to a good week,
Teri

So...

So I've been crafting up a storm the last few days.
I've been making cards, home decor and even (... gasp...) a few scrapbook pages.
It's always good to become one with your craft space and make stuff... just for the fun of it. There's just something about taking some time to get lost in creativity.
So what's been on my desk this week? You could say it's a bit of this and a bit of that.

Winners, Winners!

Wednesdays are always a good day to name winners!
And I've got a few of them today.
